Brian is a tennis pro and a coach of many sports. Since childhood, Brian has been highly involved and very enthusiastic about sports. He graduated from Lyndon State College with a Tennis Management degree but jokes that his minor was in intramural sports. He has an impressive tennis coaching resume which includes coaching world-ranked men and woman and top NCAA players as well as being the director of professional development at Wimbledon. He has been exposed to many years of gymnastics and has spent time observing some of the top coaches in the country.
Whatever his sport may be, Brian’s teaching gift is very apparent and Frog Bridge Gymnastics & Ninja is very lucky to have him.
